From the Publisher
Wondrous Cold: An Antarctic Journey
is the companion book to a new museum exhibition from the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES). After premiering at the Smithsonians National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C., in May 2006, the exhibition will be shown in 15 American cities through 2010.
As a book and exhibition, Wondrous Cold takes its place among the panoply of varied and engaging topics that SITES presents. We are deeply grateful to Quark Expeditions, our generous sponsor, for sharing our vision of reaching Americans wherever they live, work, and play.
